Radiographs, or X-rays, are one of the most common, useful diagnostic tools in medicine because of their ability to penetrate tissues and show your pet's organs and bones.
We use X-rays to examine your pet's bones, lungs, heart, abdomen, oral cavity, and other areas, and for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and surgical conditions.
If we suspect your pet has a fractured bone, has swallowed a foreign object, or is suffering from a heart problem, an X-ray can tell us what we need to know.
Because X-rays are such a valuable diagnostic tool, we have invested in a state-of-the-art digital X-ray machine.
There are many important advantages to digital X-rays. Digital X-rays can immediately be viewed on a computer monitor. The clear, detailed images can be manipulated so we can get a better view of your pet's bones and internal organs, leading to a quicker, more accurate diagnosis.
Digital X-rays take less time to process, which accounts for less time your pet will spend on the X-ray table, less stress your pet will experience during the radiograph, and less waiting time for you. No harsh chemicals are needed to develop the images, reducing potential harm to our staff and to the environment.
Advanced diagnostic capabilities are an extremely important part of veterinary medicine. Our investment in digital X-ray technology reflects our commitment to offer you and your pet the best, most complete healthcare available.
